Class 4 enjoy World Book Day

It was World Book Day this month and Class 4 celebrated in style. All of the children enjoyed a fun filled day, reading books, listening to stories and drawing their favourite book characters. Their costumes were fantastic. Check out our fab photos…

Well done Class 4. You looked great!

Penpol, it’s NASA calling!

This week, on Monday at 2pm our time (10am at the NASA space centre in America) Year 5 had the opportunity to Skype call with an actual NASA scientist (he even has the email address @NASA.com which Mr Pollard and Mr Wise were very impressed by).

The children had a range of excellent questions to ask Martin, whose job it is to look at molecules floating into the farthest reaches of our universe. These included ‘Which is your favourite planet and why?’ ‘Have you ever seen the NASA supercomputer?’ and the ever interesting ‘How do you go to the toilet in space?’

 

It was interesting talking to Martin as he is based in America and works for NASA. I learnt that there is a difference between types of meteor and also that it takes around 13 years to become a NASA scientist! – Fifi

We are very grateful to Martin for giving up his time and hopefully he has just had a hand in giving someone a lifetime of interest in the subject.

Class 6 travel back in time

 

Class 6 travelled back in time last week when they visited  The National  Maritime Museum in Falmouth, to hear all about the Titanic and how she met her fate by striking an iceberg.

The children enjoyed meeting the Captain Edward John Smith, dressing up as survivors, making their own sailing boats and having time to explore other areas of the museum.

” I enjoyed meeting the real Captain Smith” – Amelia

“I loved making and sailing our boats” – Riley

” I loved looking out to sea using the binoculars” Hazel

“I enjoyed going back in time” – Jasmine
